In view of this being a CX7800 problem mis-posted in the C86 section, and, it seems, Smithbrother having lost interest in the problem, let's call it "solved by poster".

I have been using an epson stylus color 880 for years. One day it would not print. Replaced the cartridges and still will not print. It goes through the printing procedures but nothing shows up on...


The print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the EPSON printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Perform up to 3 cycles if necessary. If the nozzle check is not printing completely, and if the head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, try replacing the ink cartridge. Any ink cartridge installed into the printer must have a blue label on top of it. If the blue label has been removed from the ink cartridge, do not install the cartridge. Using an ink cartridge, which does not have the blue label on it, may damage the printer. Caution: If you have already installed a cartridge which is missing the blue label, or if a previously installed ink cartridge was missing its blue label at the time it was installed, and now head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, your printer may require service and you should contact the EPSON Connection for further assistance.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I've been having problems with my Epson 7600 large format printer, I recently took it all apart to unblock the light black tube. I reassembled the printer and everything is back to normal apart from I now...


The most common cause of horizontal banding is generally missing, deflected or clogged nozzles. To see if this is the cause you should first print a nozzle check and examine the printout with a 10x or better eye loupe for any missing or deflected nozzles. If nozzles are missing or deflected you will need to perform cleaning cycles to recover these nozzles. Once all missing nozzles are recovered try printing your document again.
If no nozzles are missing or deflected, check that you are using the correct driver settings for the type of media you're printing on. Also try printing at a higher resolution and turning high-speed (bi-directional) printing off.

The most common cause of vertical banding is over-saturation of the media, usually created by paper "rippling". To correct this effect, decrease the saturation and lower the paper suction. If vertical banding is still apparent print the image with high speed off (uni-directional). If this corrects the issue, align the print head, as described on page 5-6 of the Users Guide.

When printing a picture, the picture is blue when printed the printer has new ink cartirages


goto printer properties and under the utility tab, print the nozzle check print out to see which color is missing.. if your picture is only in Cyan color, most probably your Yellow and Megenta is clogged.. try doing the print head cleaning and see if there is any improvement to your print out.

Stylus printing striped alternating shades of yellow and green of image


Possible printhead issue.
Please reseat the black cartridge. Let the printer charge like it normally does.
Print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing lines or missing colors on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver. 3 consecutive cleaning cycle is recommended. Compare the nozzle pattern over the last printout. If you see any improvement, you can clean the head numerous times until you get a perfect nozzle check pattern.

Epson 9600 suddendly stopped printing yellow


It's NOT a cartridge if this works... I had a similar problem with a 9600 I bought on eBay that had been inoperable over 18 months. Three colors would NOT clear up after multiple power cleanings. Epson support politely solved the issue at no charge on the phone... he had me drop a few drops of warm water on the pad the printhead rests on when not printing. You have to move the printhead to the left to do that by moving up the little lever near the cutter. The pad is easier to reach with a long eye dropper. I used very warm water- not boiling. I replaced the printhead over the warm water pad for an hour. Then I repeated the process and let it be for another 60 minutes. Then I did a nozzle check and what was gummed up yellow, cyan, and magenta nozzles became clear and it's worked fine since. Good luck!
